This short tutorial aims at introducing support vector machine (SVM) methods from its mathematical formulation along with an efficient implementation in a few lines of Python! Do play with the full code hosted on my github page. I strongly recommend reading Support Vector Machine Solvers (from L. Bottou & C-J. Lin) for an in-depth cover of the topic, along with the LIBSVM library. The present post naturally follows this introduction on SVMs.
If you are passing by Oxford as a tourist, a visiting student or have already been living there for a while, you cannot miss the enthralling excitement happening around the many bars and pubs scattered in the city. There are especially a significant selection of front and back gardens which offer the perfect place to drink a pint or a glass of Pimm's. I hope you'll love my an hand-curated list of the most thrilling beer gardens one can find in The City of Dreaming Spires!
